Clinical pharmacology

The mechanism by which colchicinum exerts its beneficial effect in patients has not been fully elucidated; however, evidence suggests that colchicinum may interfere with the intracellular assembly of the inflammasome complex present in neutrophils and monocytes that mediates activation of interleukin-1alpha. Additionally, colchicine disrupts cytoskeletal functions through inhibition of alphatubulin polymerization into microtubules and consequently prevents the activation, degranulation, and migration of neutrophils thought to mediate some gout symptoms.
